Shackleton Yarn

The Shackleton Yarn is available! For a full description and instructions for ordering please visit my website at


Pictured below in the Abide by Kirsten Kapur, the yarn lends itself to a variety of accessories and garments.  It exemplifies it’s wild, island heritage with durability and tensile strength but does not compromise on elegance

Flat Island is located off the coast of Maine and is home to a small flock of island sheep. Their heritage includes a healthy dose of Romney and Coopworth leading to a long stapled, lustrous wool. This flock also contains an amazing assortment of diverse grey, brown, and charcoal, fleeces. Highlighted below is the 2016 trip to shear.
